For Young Learners Aged 7-12

We’re opening up a world of fun online music learning for children and young people

Charanga Music World

Learning an instrument is lots of fun but we know that in the early stages particularly, children need help getting into a good practising routine between lessons.

To help children make the best possible start we’ve introduced a new online programme called Charanga Music World. Right from the outset, Music World engages children in ways that are familiar to them. They create an avatar, choose their instrument and straight away enter a magical musical world of learning, practising and having fun as they learn the essential skills. It’s also a great way for parents and carers to find out how to help their children.

If a child is learning with a teacher from Notts or one of the other Hub partners, you can ask them for a token which will enable you to set up a free account. Likewise, if a child is attending a school taking part in the Hub’s ‘Musical School’ programme they should ask their music teacher for a token.

Instrumental and School Music Teachers

If you teach instruments to pupils aged 7­-12, beginner to pre­-Grade 1 level, Charanga Music World will provide them with hours of musical enjoyment and engagement with:

  • online interactive pieces
  • activities
  • videos
  • quizzes
  • cartoons
  • other resources that support their musical development

As soon as the kids saw the World, they were completely engaged

Accelerate Children’s Learning

Children enjoy using computers and Charanga Music World makes use of these skills to provide engaging activities helping motivate them to practise more between lessons and so accelerate their learning.

Play Along to Backing Tracks

There are pieces with backing tracks which can be played at different tempi and with or without the tune being played with the pupil; there are graphics which can be used to show where notes are played on the instrument as they are being played; phrases can be looped; interactive resources support aural skills, simple improvising and composition.

Personalised Learning and Achievement

Each child can make their own avatar and can earn points and virtual “coins” along the way, as well as badges for achieving certain milestones.
